2:32am
>> i have no evidence at this point from what i have seen that classified information was disclosed that in any way would have had a negative impact on our national security. >> reporter: on the high-stakes talks over the looming budget crisis, the president took a hard line on his bottom line. any deficit deal must include tax increases on the wealthy. >> mr. voters agreed with me on this issue than voted for me. so we have a clear majority of the american people who recognize if we are going to be serious about deficit reduction we have to do it in a balance add way. >> reporter: there was a real flash of presidential anger on the topic of the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi in libya. republicans lashed out at susan rice, the leading candidate to replace secretary of state hillary clinton. because she initially suggested the attack began as a protest. >> why would susan rice not get our vote? i don't trust her. >> reporter: we put that to the president. senator graham said he simply
2:33am
doesn't trust ambassador rice after what she said about benghazi. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador, who had nothing to do with benghazi and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> reporter: and a blistering response to that, senator graham issued a statement to the president saying, quote, don't think for one minute that i don't hold you responsible. i think you failed as commander-in-chief before, during, and after the attack. in other words, there is a major showdown on this still to come. jonathan karl, abc news, the white house. >> three republican senators hoping to launch a congressional committee, kind of a watergate style to investigate exactly what happened. former cia director david petraeus agreed to testify on capitol hill tomorrow. only about the september 11th attacks on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. his testimony will be limited to those events only and will not

2:35am
about that. and also, we talk to dudes about this story, though they make the point that if the director of cia gets busted for, you know, an infidelity, you know, that may be a signal that everyone needs to be a little bit better behavior. the fact that he was using a gmail account for this trying to hide things in the draft folder so nothing was truly sent. but they would have a shared account all in the draft folder that was the best that the cia director could come up with gmail? >> gmail? >> much lesser scale. some of the things you hear on the street. layman's reaction. >> from the dudes. >> dudes. >> like how you guys are trying to cover your hineys. >> not trying to cover but just these are stories that make you go hmm. the president talked about the looming fiscal cliff and what he said at the white house got a lot of attention on wall street. stocks sank because of fears there will not be a deal by end of the your to head off higher taxes and those steep spending cuts as well. the dow tumbled 185 points.

3:02am
in his first press conference in eight months, president obama said the american people knew what they were getting when they re-elected him. and his takeaway from last week's results -- >> i've got a mandate to help middle-class families. >> reporter: the fiscal cliff and mandatory spending cuts and tax increases is looming at the end of the year. >> i want a big deal. i want a comprehensive deal. >> reporter: the president reiterated that he's not backing down from the campaign pledge. to raise taxes on the wealthiest americans. >> a modest tax increase on the wealthy is not going to break their backs. they'll still be wealthy. >> reporter: congressional republicans say they're welling to compromise for a deal, but on that issue they're standing firm. >> we know that you can't raise taxes enough to solve the problem. >> reporter: for nearly an hour, president obama took a wide range of questions. he launched a strong defense of u.n. ambassador susan rice whose been under fire from republicans for the administration's handling of the benghazi attack. >> she has done exemplarily
3:03am
work. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> reporter: for the first time, president obama weighed in on the scandal that cost david petraeus his job as cia director. >> i have no evidence at this point from what i have seen that classified information was disclosed that in any way would have had a negative impact on our national security. >> reporter: tomorrow the president sits down with leaders from both parties at the white house. and their big topic, the fiscal cliff. rob, paula, back to you. >> to be a fly on that wall. the president takes a break today from the fiscal crisis ills to visit some storm damaged areas here in new york. the president will meet with residents and first responders during an afternoon visit. thousands of people on long island are still without power. now more than two weeks after sandy hit. new york's governor has asked for $30 billion in federal money to rebuild after the storm.
3:04am
>> they need it. well, former cia director david petraeus will be on capitol hill tomorrow to test about the september 11th attacks on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. petraeus was head of the cia when ambassador chris stevens and throw americans were killed. he visited libya shortly thereafter. his testimony is going to be limited to the events in benghazi only. the closed hearing will not deal with his extramarital affair with his biographer, paula broadwell. and the fbi is investigating whether broadwell violated the law for storing military documents including classified material on her computer. the army has suspended her security clearance and jill kelley the other woman who triggered the investigation into broadwell has been stripped of a special access pass to macdill air force base in tampa. >> oh, the plot thickens. wow. >> where is the flow chart? >> woo, getting tough to follow. really tough to follow. trying to sort it out.
3:05am
well, for the first time since his concession speech, mitt romney is speaking out about his election day defeat and does sound a little bitter. >> the wound i think are still a little raw. during a conference call with his top donners, romney said president obama won re-election because of quote, gifts to black, hispanic and young voters. so-called gifts include obama care, the dream act, contraception for women and break on college loans. >> what the president, president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition. give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government. and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote. >> romney's comments echo the 47% remark he's made during a fund-raiser, suggesting obama supporters relied on government handouts. he also said, he was surprised by the loss. something you will hear about in 2016, where you used to live in louisiana, the governor, bobby
3:06am
jindal who was a staumplg romney supporter, that these remarks by romney are categorically untrue. >> he did. jindal is as conservative as they get, what he said, we have to stop dividing the american voters. if we are going to be a competitive party and when elections on the national stage, and continue to fight for our conservative principles, we need two messages to get out loudly and clearly. one, we are fighting for 100% of the votes. and second, our policies, benefit every american who wants to pursue the american dream. period. a lot of infighting between republicans. as they try to sort through the aftermath of the election here. but it is reminiscent, these comments, about the 47% tape. i'm confused as to how contraception, health care or college loans are racial issues and how they are -- they're gifts to people, as opposed to tools to help people live a better or healthier life. >> you have to think this, this phone call with some of the top donors. here he was, they gave basically $900 million.
3:07am
i'm sure they had some questions and were demands some answers because he didn't even expect to raise $500 million. there he was raising $900 million. they're look what happened. you were telling us one thing. it didn't pan out. to be that way on election day. >> people write big checks. don't get what they want. you have to tell them something, too. but it seems again, what some could interpret deis vicive comments against the very voters republicans need to win back in their tent in order to be relevant in elections down the road. latinos, huge. young people, huge. they went for obama are 60%. so i don't understand why you would continue to say these things if you really want the gop to kind of do better during elections down the road. >> which is why bobby jindal is distancing himself. >> and looking to 2016. interesting. moving on to other news, the fda is looking into whether the drink 5-hour energy, we know it here, could be tied to the deaths of 13 people over the last four years. the agency says since 2009, the popular, highly caffeinated
3:08am

3:32am
>> he is frederick humphries, a veteran agent who infamously sent shirtless pictures of himself to a key player in the scandal. and president obama now has spoken out about the unfolding mess. abc's mark greenblat has the latest on that. good morning, mark. >> reporter: paula, rob, good morning. the president's remarks came in his first press conference since the election. and he tried to remind the nation that there is more to the david petraeus story than just an affair. the president weighed in for the first time on the sex scandal that captured the nation's attention. and forced david petraeus to resign as director of the cia admitting to an affair with his biographer paula broadwell. >> i have no evidence that classified information was disclosed that in any way would have had a negative impact on our national security. >> reporter: another respected four-star general caught up in the scandal got a vote of confidence from the secretary of defense. john allen is accused of exchanging potentially inappropriate e-mails with tampa
3:33am

3:34am
york. paul, rob, back to you. >> thank you, mark. well, the president spoke on a range of other challenges he faces after winning a second term. on the budget crisis, the president said he was given a mandate by middle-class voters to protect their interests. and he said again that he wanted the rich to pay more taxes as a way of helping reduce the growing deficit. the president said he would address global climate change as well. one of the hot button moments came when he addressed criticism of u.s. ambassador susan rice. he said critics should go after him not after his ambassador. that really was when the president was most charged up and animated for sure yesterday. really, the -- it's, senator john mccain, has issue with how this was handled as well as lindsay graham, and lindsay graham with a pretty fiery statement said, mr. president don't think for one minute that i don't hold you ultimately responsible for benghazi. i think you failed as commander-in-chief, before, during and after the attack. given what i know now i have no intention of promoting any one who is up to their eyeballs in
3:35am
the benghazi debacle. and susan rice currently u.n. ambassador, being floated as hillary clinton's successor. >> also interesting, some report going on about how, times have changed though. because obviously, many years ago when they were nominated condoleezza rice to be secretary of the state at the time, she was national security adviser she had gone around saying about the weapons of mass destruction in iraq, other intelligence. ended up proving false at the time. mccain stood by her. despite obviously the wrong information that she was disseminating at the time. saying "i am not going to mention my colleague's name. some of the remarks aimed at her during the hearings, challenged her integrity. we can disagree on policy and a lot of things but i think it is clear that condoleezza rice is a person of integrity. so, it is interesting. how times have changed. what, really, a parallel between, you know there is intelligence failures then there are massive intelligence failures he didn't have an issue with condoleezza and wmds, now
3:36am
taking issue with susan rice and benghazi, the difference seven years can make. >> the president is keeping an eye on the growing violence in the middle east. israel carried out more than 50 air strikes in gaza including this one. which killed the military leader of hamas. egypt withdrew its ambassador to israel in protest of the attack last night. the palestinian officials asked the u.n. security council to halt the attacks. oil giant bp is expected to plead guilty today for its role in the massive 2010 oil spill off the gulf coast. according to terms reached with the justice department, bp would admit negligence and other failures leading up to that spill, and would also pay fines probably to the tune of billions of dollars. in exchange though the company would be exempt from future prosecution. a press conference with a.g., eric holder set for new orleans later today reportedly. ticktock, the clock is ticking down to what could be the end of an american institution.
3:37am
>> snack food giant hostess says if striking employees don't return to work by 5:00 p.m. eastern time to day, it will file a motion of bankruptcy court to liquidate the entire company. if that motion is granted the company could shut down as early as tuesday meaning that no more twinkies, no more cupcakes, no more ding dongs. well, the suspect in the colorado movie theater shooting has reportedly injured himself in jail. prompting a judge to postpone his hearing. the source says that james holmes was hospitalized after intentionally ramming his head into a wall in his cell. defense attorneys however refused to elaborate on his condition. holmes is accused of killing 12 people and injuring 58 during that midnight showing of the batman movie back in july. the man who confessed to killing etan patz indicted for murdering the boy. police say pedro hernandez gave a detailed account of what happened to the child more than 30 years ago.

3:44am
morning. perhaps his most eye opening explanations yet during his conference call with a larger group of donors. romney arguing president obama won in part because of gifts the obama administration had given to particular groups in this country. >> what the president -- the president's campaign did was focus on certain members of this base coalition. give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government. and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote. >> reporter: among those groups the gifts went to, romney discusses the african-american community, young people and the hispanic community, here, offering one of the gifts to them. >> what the president did is he gave them two things. one a big gift on immigration with the dream act amnesty program. >> reporter: and the second thing in order to get hispanic voters? >> number two, put in place obama care which is basically $10,000 a family. i mean, it's a proven political
